WHY:   
The purpose of this event is to promote alternatives for children and to avoid gangs or tagging crews.  The non-profit group 'The San Fernando Valley Coalition on Gangs' is hosting a children’s day "A Salute to Kids".  This event will celebrate our children in the Valley by showcasing all of the programs like the Boys & Girls Clubs, the YMCA, Chivas USA Soccer camp, after school programs, and Recreation and Parks programs designed to offer children healthy alternatives to a gang lifestyle.

On this day, we are expecting over 55,000 people and we will have Radio Disney, carnival rides, rock climbing, film making for kids, entertainment, dancers, a petting zoo, and a resource fair with over 100 programs and activities that focuses on kids.  There will be celebrity appearances including the voice of Bart Simpson and other cartoon characters.
